THE MOUSE IN THE HOUSE

News Item:  Theresa May loses majority in U.K. election when she was hoping to
increase it.

How are things going Mickey?

It's superlux here.

Of course it is compared to the Underground and tube stations and tunnels and such
... your previous haunts.

Let's just say the family's moved up in the world, and life smells rich at the Palace of
Westminster.

Where do you spend your time?

Oh everywhere as long as we keep out of sight -- the House of Commons, the Lords,

Naturally!  I see you've put on weight.  And how's the new Iron Lady?

leftovers.  The Lords do us proud here ...

Bloody hell, yes!
